Rotterdam Museum Night

Rotterdam Museum Night is ready to captivate you with spectacular art and culture by starlight!


The Rotterdam Museum Night is officially called Museumnacht010, which refers to the Rotterdam area code. Participating museums and cultural institutions in the area will open to the public with exhibitions and special events from 8pm until 1am. Providing a programme full of playful themes, this night of culture and fun will offer a new perspective on Rotterdam.

As soon as they become available, you will be able to order your ticket to Museumnacht010.

Enthralling art in every corner

More than 30 museums and cultural venues take part in Rotterdam Museum Night, and the venues are also within walking or cycling distance of one another. Visitors to the event can mill around the city by night and discover mesmerising art in every corner.
